Tropical Dreams

We are so quickly moving into fall here and I can feel the very last breath of summer coming to its end. I’m already dreaming of a tropical mid winter getaway….. and I have my outfit totally sorted! haha!

These photos were taken only a couple of weeks ago, when the sun was still sharply piercing it’s heat upon my skin. I took my lovely Jar Body Scrub to the beach with me so I could shed some layers and invigorate my body and soul. It’s actually the perfect time of year to start up some body scrubbing, if you don’t already do this as part of your health and beauty routine. Improving lymph flow via scrubbing keeps your immune system in top form, not to mention your skin luminous and soft. A simple and nurturing way to stay healthy over the winter months, when your skin has an increased tendency to dry out. Feels so good to take care of yourself.

I hope you enjoy this tropical inspiration post and it brings you visions of an island paradise of coconut palms, turquoise waters, hot sun and long stretches of white sand.

With love and gratitude,

Helen xx
